  • I drank coffee throughout both my pregnancy's. With son I would have 1 cup of regular and the rest was decaff. With daughter it was about the same

  • I drink a cup a day of regular.... But I feel bad that I do, because my midwife gave me a paper called herbs to avoid while pregnant. It's a big looooong list, and coffee is on there.

  • Caffeine is the #1 source of miscarriages in the 1st trimester. Just so you know....

    "Drinking a couple of cups of coffee a day has long been considered safe during pregnancy, but a new study finds that even this modest amount of caffeine could double a woman’s risk of miscarriage."

  • Many say not to drink coffee while you are pregnant, however, it is fine to drink 2 cups a day... But after that I think the caffeine isn't good for baby... but 2 cups is fine... However, caffeine drinks aren't alright at all....
